It’s likely that your reward for being brilliant at work was to become a manager, and after the thrill and novelty had faded you realised that, in addition to your day job, you had suddenly assumed the responsibility for getting the best out of a whole team of people.
This course is designed for you – it’s all about getting the best possible performance from yourself and others, creating a spirit of motivation, dealing with people who are not at the top of their game and bringing a real spark to your management.
The day is highly participative, interactive and fun and you’ll take away ideas that you can apply immediately on your return to work.
What you'll learn
Who are you?
The greater your insight into who you are and how others perceive you, the greater will be your skill in stepping into others’ shoes and understanding how to get the best out of them. At the start of the course, you’ll have an opportunity to assess yourself, and at the end, to get some feedback on the impression that you have made on other course participants.
Your preferred management style
If you know you preferred management style, you can make rational judgements about when it will and will not be most useful. You’ll explore a variety of alternative management styles and learn to use them to get the richest solutions in a variety of realistic work situations.
High performance vs. tick box cultures
Most organisations are on a spectrum from high performance to tick-box. You’ll discover where your organisation and your team are, where your own attitude falls on the spectrum and how to move people further towards high performance.
Do you truly know what motivates you? And could you, hand on heart, describe the real motivators for each of your team members. You’ll learn how to analyse motivational drivers and how to use them to help people to feel more motivated and perform more effectively.
